Service of Mourning at St Matthews Church to remember Queen Elizabeth II and her visit to Windsor

Sep 21, 2022

 

Back in 1970, Queen Elizabeth visited Australia and among the places she stopped was St Matthews Church in Windsor on the afternoon of April 30 where she had a tour and signed the visitor’s book, so it’s fitting the landmark building should be open on Thursday to remember the departed Sovereign and her association with the town.

 

The service, which begins with a Prelude at 9.30am of organ played by Graeme Hunt accompanied on the flute, played by Karen Merrick, will be led by the Reverend Chris Jones.

 

St Matthews Church is well worth visiting and the special service tomorrow is sure to be memorable.
